Rick Owens is an American-born designer living in Paris, known for his abstract, yet approachable avant-garde designs. Born Richard Saturnino Owens, he began his label in California in 1994 and now oversees a veritable fashion empire from a five-story compound in Paris. With his partner Michèle Lamy, he conceives of collections that marry Classical influences to Brutalist design and an ascetic tribalism. Asymmetrical tunics, sarouel shorts and trousers, elongated t-shirts, and Owens’ signature Geobasket sneakers and frequent collaborations with adidas present a powerful conception of masculinity at once ancient and futuristic, priestly and profane.
